ON THE BRINK – British RAF Typhoon Jets Intercept 10 Russian Airplanes

Fighter jets from Nato’s Baltic air policing mission have scrambled to intercept 22 Russian aircraft in multiple formations over the past week, including two of the largest interceptions over eastern Europe since tensions with Moscow began to rise 18 months ago.

In total, Nato aircraft have had to conduct emergency deployments on more than 250 occasions this year over Europe, Nato officials said — the highest number for an equivalent period since the end of the cold war.

The alliance’s Baltic Air Policing mission has conducted 120 of those scrambles. The Europe-wide figure compares with 400 events for the whole of 2014, marking what Nato sees as a steady growth in the size and seriousness of Russia’s aerial provocations.

“In the last year, Russia’s air activity close to Nato borders has increased in quantity and complexity,” an alliance official said. “Russian aircraft often fly without their transponders switched on, without filing flights plans and without communicating with air traffic authorities.” uk baltic “united kingdom” RAF “Royal Air Force” jet “fighter jet” air flight flying airplane coast russia british launch typhoon 2015 2016 defense patrol radar signal russian footage “video footage” battle space “air space” tracking GPS “flight radar” future europe “european union” transport aircraft pilot “flight sim” “flight simulator” history power performance speed news media entertainment u.s. usa america “united states” alaska trends trendy “elite nwo agenda” agenda game games putin obama montagraph coast to coast am alex jones infowars prediction september 23 october end times jade helm 15 blood moons blue moon global reset illuminati george soros daboo7 daboo77 anonymous jsnip4 bilderberg china stock market collapse gold silver dollar collapse

Transponders allow civil aviation authorities to easily locate their whereabouts. Russia has been careful not to actually breach alliance airspace, but the increase in activity can be seen as an attempt by Moscow to test the alliance’s response times.

The European Air Safety Agency — a civilian body — ruled in April that Russia’s flights pose a “high risk” to civil aviation. Two Russian bombers intercepted by U.S. fighter jets off the California coast on July Fourth could be seen as having raised a metaphorical middle finger to the United States.

“Good morning, American pilots. We are here to greet you on your Fourth of July Independence Day,” they said, according to the North American Aerospace Defense Command. Russia is negotiating with numerous countries over the sale of its Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jet, and a number of these deals “are coming to fruition.” Russia and China have been negotiating the sale of the Su-35 for years. Russia had previously been insisting that China purchase at least 48 Su-35s over fears that Beijing will reverse engineer the jet. China has a history of purchasing a few Russian warplanes only to reverse engineer the jets and produce an indigenous version. This is what happened, for instance, when China purchased the Su-27 and then unveiled a domestically built variant, the J-11.
